Preliminary and unaudited revenue for third quarter 2018 is expected to be in the range of $35.5 to $36.0 million, reflecting approximately 12% to 13% growth compared to the prior year period. Compared to third quarter 2017, total U.S. revenue is expected to increase between 12% to 13% to approximately $31.5 to $31.8 million, with both U.S. Orthobiologics and U.S. Spinal Implants revenue expected to increase more than 10%. International revenue is expected to increase between 14% and 20% to approximately $4.0 to $4.2 million.
Cash and cash equivalents at September 30, 2018 are expected to be approximately $11.5 million.

“We are pleased by our revenue results for the third quarter, which reflect solid revenue growth across all portfolios,” said Keith Valentine, President and Chief Executive Officer. “This momentum is driven by increasing market penetration from our recently launched products, a more engaged and increasingly exclusive distributor network, and from a deeper commitment in our organization to customer experience and medical education and training. We are confident that we are well positioned to sustain this growth as we continue to deliver cost effective procedural solutions to surgeons and hospitals to improve the quality of patient lives.”
2018 Financial Outlook
SeaSpine is increasing its full-year 2018 revenue guidance range to $141 to $142 million, up from $136 to $139 million, reflecting growth of approximately 7% to 8% over full-year 2017 revenue.
